Orchids are loved for the astonishing beauty and variety of their blooms. The most beautiful are the gorgeous Cattleyas, with their often huge, sparkling, rosy-puple and mauve flowers. The Cattleyas form part of a huge alliance comprising many other related orchids. These have been widely interbred for many years to product the colossal range of flowers that is available. Catleyas produce elongated or club-shaped pseudobulbs. They are very much flowers of fashion. There is an enormous range of flowers types, with something to suit all tastes in this fabulous alliance.
